Southern Highlands

When: Boxing Day
Where: Southern Highlands
Status of villages/towns visited:
1. Mittagong: closed.
2. Bowral: practically all closed.
3. Berrima: open. Yay!

We finally struck gold at Berrima, a lovely historic town with quaint shops and well-preserved old buildings. The hand-stirred jam shop was a favourite but I restrained myself, having already bought 6 bottles of jam earlier at Huskisson. Even the Berrima jail which is still a operating facility, was a pretty sight. Gorgeous flowers lined the outside of the large sandstone buildings.

We spent a nice afternoon browsing the shops, eating ice-creams and drinking coffee.

We made a final stop at Fitzroy Falls to see this 84 metre waterfall before heading back to Sydney after a very long day out.
